The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has assured all airport users that Nigerian airports under its management are fully ready to play host to air travellers during this Sallah celebrations.
Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN General Manager Public Affairs, said: “As part of our commitment to ensure safe, healthy and seamless facilitation of our highly esteemed passengers during the Sallah celebrations and beyond, the Authority has put necessary safety measures in place in accordance with the Covid-19 protocols of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control and the Port Health Service.”
“Other operational facilities are also functioning optimally, while our airport security architecture and other logistics have been upgraded and strengthened to provide for the expected increase in passenger traffic in and around our airports,” Mrs. Yakubu added.
While advising the general public and intending travellers to make early preparations towards completing their travel requirements in good time, Mrs. Yakubu re-stated that protocol officers and orderlies of dignitaries will not be allowed into the airport except if they are travelling alongside their principals, as only travelling passengers would be allowed into the airports.
“Also, dignitaries and VIPs are enjoined to please ensure compliance with airport protocols for their safety and that of others,” Mrs. Yakubu added.
